Why are Scots snubbing Whisky?

MP Sandra Gidley twitters: "Shock revelation! More vodka drunk in Scotland than whisky. Half of Scotsmen exceed safe drinking guidelines each week." Does that mean Scots are snubbing Famous Grouse then for Absolut or Smirnoff? Perhaps the Grouse is just too damn expensive? Afterall, it's a Scot who upped the price of booze in the budget. Who was it who said fags were one of life's little pleasures too for the working class? Follow Gidley's tweets HERE.
